Next time we plan to stay LONGER. We flew all the way from Los Angeles via London to Geneva in one day and took public transportation to Old Town then walked up to the hotel. We were exhausted, but as soon as we walked through the door we were so warmly greeted. After receiving a generous complimentary upgrade for our... More

Very disappointed with this hotel. It has the best location in Geneva. But this is all. Service is poor, impersonal. Rooms are tiny. There is no acoustic insulation, as it is an old building. So, everyday (and night) you are awaken either by the service personel or by other guests. Talking about old. There is one lift. That was broken... More

We stayed at Les Armures in Jan 2013. The hotel was beautiful and extremely well situated. The small touches (sheets and towels, for example) were fabulous, and our room was well laid out and quiet, as we had requested. The only problem: in all our years of traveling, this was the MOST EXPENSIVE hotel in which we have stayed. Yes,... More

High level swiss hospitality in a warm-haerted familial atmosphere. The location near the south bank of the lake invites you to discover the old part of geneve by walking around. Large rooms with a perfect mix of old and modern but with every indulgence in a very old historic building. Breathtaking architecture, interieur and design!

My wife and I recently stayed at Les Armures in early January 2014. This was our second time at this hotel.... and I have reviewed it before.

Excellent old world charm. Warm service, Clean, snug rooms. the in house menu could be expanded a bit to cater to a more global clientele. fantastic location, right in the middle of the old city, with its cobbled lanes, excellent cafes and antique shops. waterfront promenade is a short walk. overall a great place.

We stayed only night here, but I loved everything! Location and gorgeous interior, stuff and service. Just few steps out of hotel and you find yourself in the most center of old town ant its points of interest. The only disappointment is hotel restaurant.

Truly fantastic location in the old town. Not sure any hotel in geneva can beat it for that. Lovely, snug rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Pictures of Bill Clinton. Really good. 200 character minimum is for losers
